Haunted House? Or Haunted Me?


I live in a house with another 5 family members therefore we all have experienced something over the 18 years we have stayed in this house. We begin after I was born. My mum realized strange things were happening with me as a baby, I kept staring at something that wasn't there. Over the years I grew up I was having really bad dreams and saying really strange and scary things to my mum. I don't remember much of this. I use to tell my mum about someone tickling my feet when I was sleeping.

The first experience I vividly remember was when I was about 10 years old. My older brother told me that he heard footsteps the previous night, So of course didn't believe him at all and the next night as I fell asleep I woke up to a loud bang and footsteps running down the hall. Of course this being the first time ever since I was little experiencing this I was terrified.

Over the years this carried on a lot more. It was also increasing. I heard many things over the past years such as Footsteps, Whispers, in the kitchen I heard glass breaking and pots and pans banging, Doors swinging open, not feeling alone and Knocks. No one believed me until my mum and My little sister has had their fair share of this.

It stopped for a while, until a couple of nights ago when my older brother heard the bathroom door banging and noises, such as stuff falling of the shelves but he went in there and nothing was different. He finally believes me! I just have a question that I can't figure out.

Why is it always me experiencing this stuff?

i think you are not yourself haunted but maybe the house or some spirit entity is playing with you. Cause I know that I am maybe haunted and its very different.

As it all began with you, have you considered asking your mum for some background information? Had she maybe delved into the paranormal shortly before or while she was pregnant with you?

Hi there Paranormal12,

Perhaps it's you hearing these things simply because you're more aware of them. I mean listening to things go bump so frequently as you've described would heighten your awareness of it potentially happening again. The rest of your family may have been just as exposed to it as you have, but didn't pay as much attention, or thought it was someone else.
Especially when someone doesn't believe in anything paranormal, the possibility is rejected completely when faced with something inexplicable. But it doesn't mean that person isn't just as exposed as anyone else. It's just their perspective is different.

Are these noises causing you concern at all? If they are, you don't have to put up with it. A cleansing/shielding of your home will calm the activity down. If this interests you I'll copy paste our Rook's tried and tested method from his profile.

Thanks for sharing.


"Recipe for a Home Cleansing/Shielding... (allow for two or 3 days to complete)

Day one: Open all curtains window and doors with screens installed, let fresh air and sunshine into the home. Have all closets, cabinets and other 'dark spaces' open so that as much natural light as possible can enter those spaces. After 2-3 hours take a broom and 'sweep' out each room (this is symbolic and you do not have to really sweep) focus your thoughts on sweeping (pushing) out all negative energies / entities /thoughts. Close home up after completing each room of your home... Please do not forget your garage if you have one. (Optional) Light incense (sandalwood or Dragons-blood works well for me) and let aroma fill the home, and/or play a tape that contains your favorite Church/Positive, Upbeat (songs that give you good thoughts) songs before you begin sweeping.

Day two (or three): Once again open all curtains, windows and doors. Take a White candle (Optional) to the center most point of the home, sit on the floor and place candle in front of you. Light the candle (visualize a white ball of light) and then focus on the flame... Visualize the flame (white light) filled with positive thoughts, energy. (Say a prayer at this time if you so desire... Ask for cleansing positive energy to fill the candles flame/white light). Hold this 'image' in your mind and then visualize the flame (light) slowly expanding outward, visualize it filling the room your in, every corner and 'dark space'. Continue to visualize it's outer edges pushing away (burning away) any and all negative energies/entities out and away from each room in your home. Once you have visualized this flame (light) filling your entire home, picture it expanding to your property lines. Hold this image in your mind for a few moments then visualize 'anchoring' this flame (light) where you are sitting which is the center most point of your home. Once you have done this. Take a deep breath, relax a few moments and then blow out the candle. (If you didn't use a candle just let yourself relax a moment or two.) "

Now you can create a shield for yourself using the 'home shield' technique but instead of focusing on your home visualize the 'flame' simply surrounding you instead of your home... Best time to do this is after a nice shower using a rosemary scented soap (rosemary is good for purification and protection.) "
